by | Jun 28, 2023 | Organization & Operations | 0 comments

You’ve been working tirelessly to grow & scale your online business. However, you have noticed that your business is hitting a plateau. You might be experiencing:

  • Not getting as many leads as before.
  • Social media engagement is going down.
  • Lack of creativity & productivity
  • Feel burnout within minimal business tasks

If this sounds like you, book a free consultation to discover where the disconnect is in your business & how we can fix it together.

You’re not the first to experience this, as we have also been there! As we navigated this block in business growth, so have our clients.

Below, we want to share the 3 most common blocks to business success. 

A Cluttered Inbox:

This is a sneak one. As your business grows, so does the number of emails you get. Your inbox is full of client inquiries, potential interviews, brand partnerships & more.

With 1,000s of unread emails, opportunities can fall through the cracks. Plus, it increases the feeling of being mentally overwhelmed, knowing this task looms over you. 

By incorporating simple adjustments such as filters, tags, and even plug-ins, you open yourself to scalability.

No Clear Client Onboarding and Offboarding Process:

As a service provider, this experience plays a huge role in whether a client wants to continue working with you. We have noticed that when the onboarding experience isn’t clear, it leads to feelings of uncertainty, confusion, and overwhelming for both the client & the business owner.

This is the last key touchpoint in your client journey that directly impacts your reputation. When you have an online business (or business period), reputation is everything.

The biggest hole we see in this aspect of the business is doing everything manually rather than incorporating CRMs or automations. By doing this task manually, there is a higher chance of making mistakes & losing precious time.

Focusing Only on Your Day-to-Day Tasks:

It’s very easy to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks, & lose sight of the bigger picture of why you started your business. By staying stuck in your daily to-do list cycle, your business can start feeling like a 9-5 rather than entrepreneurial freedom.

Making S.M.A.R.T business goals provides you with a round map to success and accountability. Your goals & bigger mission will help you be consistent. It gives you an anchor to what you need to do daily, weekly, or monthly to achieve your goals.

By looking hard at your business to see what hurdles you might face, you are one step closer to achieving scalable success.

P.S.: Just in case you skipped to the bottom, here is the gist:

  • Tackle inbox clutter to increase productivity.
  • Automate your client onboarding and offboarding processes.
  • Focus more on business strategy rather than day-to-day activities.
  • Book a free consultation so you don’t have to solve this issue alone.
